Chronic pain is severe discomfort that continues a month or more beyond the usual recovery period for an injury or illness. It can manifest for months or years in tandem with another chronic condition. The pain is often not constant; it may be experienced in varying degrees of severity in response to known or unknown stressors but it consistently interferes with daily life at all levels. The pain can be experienced as muscular skeletal, as localized or systemic, and can seem to originate from any part of the body.
